Weekend MMA Recap: Santos scores KO of the Year in Brazil while Intimidation crews continue growth in Michigan & Pennsylvania

Intimidation Clothing closed out March with one of the busiest months in company history, sponsoring multiple events and fighters in different states. The month began as strongly as any month in company history, with two top-tier MMA promotions – Driven MMA & Colosseum Combat – kicking off the month in style, and ended with Pinnacle FC capping off a great month and with a KO of the Year candidate from Luis “Sapo” Santos at XFCi 3 in Brazil.

Hodge (pictured, right) closed out his amateur career with yet another title to go along with his two NAAFS titles and EFP title, as he claimed the PinnacleFC featherweight title with a dominant three-round performance over Rich Cantolina (10-7).

I was happy to confirm that my skills are right on par with any other cutman in the industry and I look forward to continuing to prove that any chance I can.

Those next chances will come Friday and Saturday with two of the best shows the country will see this year. First, the XFC will go to Charlotte, North Carolina where Felice Herrig, Nick Newell, and Cory Hill lead a long list of talent available for fans coming to town or watching XFC 19 on AXS TV.
